Applying makeup for those with hooded eye can be more difficult. Eye makeup can brighten your face and make you feel more awake and energized. However, eye makeup can make your eyes look smaller and more slender, which is not what anyone wants. We were conscious of this and searched for hooded eye makeup tricks that could help you get a glamorous look, but without being too heavy-handed.
For hooded eyes, white eyeliner
Nikkia Joy, a YouTuber and makeup enthusiast, shares this beauty tip. She demonstrates how to apply makeup to her hooded-eyes and discusses what you should do (and not do) if you have them.
She claims that the way you apply mascara to hooded eye can make them appear brighter or more tired. She swears by white eyeliner to make them look larger and more energetic. Before you start smearing it along your lashline, please read this.
Joy talks about tightlining in her video. This refers to filling in the waterline (or bottom lash line) using your eyeliner pencil. Although tightlining with brown or black liner can add drama and emphasis to your eyes, using white liner will make them appear brighter and more open. This is especially important if you have hooded eyelids. You can see her explanation at 7 minutes 20 in the video.
Joy and other makeup professionals recommend that you use less eyeliner if your eyes are hooded. Make sure you don't make your eyes look darker by using dark eyeliner along your upper lash lines. You can highlight your eyes by highlighting your eyebrows with mascara or a brow pencil. Then, apply a shiny or lighter-colored eyeshadow to the brow bone.
There you go. If you want your hooded eyes to look bigger, brighter, and more energetic, use a white pencil eyeliner (we love this Maybelline one, Amazon $7.98). Line your bottom lashline. These simple tips will make your look stunning and beautiful.
